LRS Architects Designs 127-Unit Seniors Housing Expansion in Portland, Oregon

by Amy Works

PORTLAND, ORE. — LRS Architects Inc has completed design work for Parkview at Terwilliger Plaza just south of downtown Portland.

The 10-story, 370,000-square-foot building will bring 127 independent living apartments to the existing three-building senior living campus while providing space for up to 200 new residents.

The project is designed to the Passive House standard with several sustainability goals, including sustainable energy use and improved air quality.

“Features such as thermal bridge-free detailing, airtight construction, energy-efficient appliances, heat recovery ventilation and a green roof are central toward creating comfortable and energy-efficient spaces and establishing a level of sustainability other complexes cannot guarantee,” says Peter Houseknecht, LRS’s lead architect on the project. “Parkview at Terwilliger Plaza is the largest Passive House-certified project on the U.S. West Coast and largest in the senior living space.”

Construction on the project began in the spring 2021 and is scheduled for completion in 2023.
